This is one of my favorite sayings. Now...don't get my wrong...I'm not a peppy morning person when I first get up. I need to get out of bed, stretch, breathe a little, and process my mood - and then I'm good to go - with a "Top of the mornin' to ya". It's my thing. Even my sister was mentioning it to me the other day - that I'm not exactly a morning person - she noticed I need time to process - and then I can pull out a "Top of the mornin' to ya."
I've been out for my walk, went and got gas for the car (listened to some lovely jazz on the way), and I picked up a latte at one of my coffee stomping grounds.
Well - anchor is still not working. I guess I need to move on to something else. That's all right. My morning walks have been about observing - and I like doing that. At first I was just walking and looking at stuff - thinking - I think I've taken a lot of pictures already and posted them. But nope! There is more to see. I spotted these!
I love these fluffers. I don't know what these plants are called. They look like dusters or fluffers - or poofs. They're soft looking and when I see them all together - I smile. So I took a picture to include with today's blog.
Then when I picked up my coffee - I saw this on the wall. (see picture below) I hadn't noticed it the last time I came into this coffee shop - I think it's new. How cool. I forgot to ask the girl working there if it actually works. Seeing an old school telephone is just calming to me. And it's pink! Had to take a picture and show you all.
I'm feeling very aware of my blessings - I'm taking the time to acknowledge the growth I've made - the healing that is happening. When I'm out walking or driving by myself - I'm so proud of myself. This is a big deal for me.
Take the time to pat yourself on the back for the things you've accomplished. Don't compare to others. I'm really working on this too - because why do it? We have the right to be proud of the life we're living and honor it. Believe me - I'm really observant - even more so now - and I'm not seeing that everyone has their shit together or has a perfect life. They are living their life - trying to find moments of joy and solace.
I really believe we all wake up hoping for a better world. The only real power we have is to make the world inside of ourselves as peaceful and loving as we can.
